Campus development

As part of our exciting works to redevelop our campus, we’re currently undertaking significant demolition, building, construction and maintenance work on the campus, including close to residential buildings. Although our contractors aim to minimise the impact, noise and dust can affect surrounding buildings from time to time. There may be short periods when services may be interrupted although the University will try and notify you of any known planned works as soon as possible in advance of them. Contact us before booking if you have any queries about these works.

Visiting Brighton

Brighton is an exciting holiday destination with a range of tourist attractions. There is a vibrant night life, a range of restaurants and cafes, and events and festivals throughout the summer. Find out more about Brighton & Hove.

Our campus is surrounded by the beautiful South Downs National Park. Many of our buildings are listed and were designed by the architect Sir Basil Spence in the 1960s. Find out more about the Sussex campus.
